Automation and Technology

Our new system allow us to measure in any weather condition, in one trip, with one person, without bringing panels to the boat.  Patterns are generated at the computer, and are digitally stored, nested to maximize material savings, and then quickly marked and cut with their Plotter/Cutter.

Lakeside Marine Canvas utilizes the Miller Weldmaster on larger tops and covers such as Party tops, trampolines and Bimini tops. Welding offers a more seamless look with a stronger bond for increased product life. Sewing machines create perforations that’s more prone to leaks. Smooth, continuous seaming creates a better-looking product that won’t need frequent repair due to the deterioration of the thread.

The Model 54 Tube Bender is great for  boating fabrications. We use this bender for a broad spectrum of projects. No project is too big for us to handle! 

We utilize LT-2D3D digital templating to capture every detail of your boat! 2D and 3D laser measuring allows us to utilized CAD software to edit and export wire frames to ensure the perfect cover, every time! 

Our Carlson Design Plotter/Cutter makes every job simpler, more accurate, cleaner, in less time, and with less material. 

MPanel Production was developed specifically for the Marine Canvas industry. It uses a wizard type interface that guides us step by step through your project. Working in Rhinoceros software as an add-on plugin, MPanel Production has tools that allow us to input all of the ‘extras’ that are needed to turn your concept into reality.

Lakeside uses Rhino® to create, edit, analyze, document, render and translate curves, surfaces, and solids, point clouds, and polygon meshes. There are no limits on complexity, degree, or size beyond those of our hardware. Rhino development project started nearly 20 years ago to provide marine designers with tools for building computer models that could be used to drive the digitally controlled fabrication equipment used in our fabrication today.

We proudly blend our old school knowledge of fabric and fabrication with new school technology. This blend of foundational knowledge allow us to produce your custom products! We use state-of-the-art technology so that no project is too tough for use to create!  

We Proudly Use
